    Uncle Jim, Randy, Danny & Kenny:
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I pray you find comfort that Aunt Phyllis is whole, healthy and with Jesus.
    I’m sorry we aren’t able to come home for the service. Our daughter Abby is having surgery at the University of Michigan Mott’s Children’s Hospital on Wednesday to remove a tumor from her humerus.
    All of you are in our thoughts and prayers!
    Love you!

    Jim and family Sorry to hear of Phyllis passing. Was not aware of this until today…..attended the funeral for Elsie Haima today and John (her husband) asked if I had heard. He had only seen a tiny announcement in a newspaper and also didn’t know. My sincere sympathy to you and family. May God comfort you during this time. Sure Elsie and Phyllis together are “walking with the Lord”
